UConn Director of Athletics Warde Manuel said Pasqualoni, in his third season as the Huskies' coach, had been relieved of his duties following Saturday's 41-12 loss to Buffalo.
Associate head coach and offensive line head coach George DeLeone was also fired, while offensive coordinator and wide receivers coach T.J. Weist was named interim head coach.
"I am making this change in our football coaching staff now as we approach the conference season to see an improved performance from our football program," Manuel said.
"I am disappointed in the record of our team thus far, but I am confident that our coaching staff and student-athletes will continue to work hard to improve and that will be reflected on the field of play as we start our American Athletic Conference season."
Pasqualoni, who compiled a 10-18 record as UConn mentor, will receive a $750,000 payment to buy out the remainder of his contract, Manuel said.
